Food for thought supermarket visit

On Wednesday last week Room 16 walked down to the St Martin's New World as a part of our Food for Thought lessons. Chloe had taught us about everyday day options and sometimes options. We had to pick everyday and sometimes options for cereals, snacks, dairy and bread. This was really eye-opening and has made us think a lot about the choices we make when it comes to food.  A big thank you to our parent helper's for coming with us to the supermarket. :)
